    Additional Skills

    I've played the guitar and drums for most of my life and I also dabble with the bass guitar, mandolin, ukulele, piano, most things I can get my hands on, really!

    OTHER SKILLS:

    Actor-Musician, Actor-Singer, ADR-Additional Dialogue Recording, Audio Books, Audio Drama, Children's Theatre, Comedy, Dubbing, Motion Capture, Musical Comedy, Musician-Professional, Physical Comedy, Recording Artist, Repertory, Stand-up Comic, Voice Acting, Voice Over, Writer/Director - Comedy Fringe

    Additional Information

    I wrote the music and lyrics (and am musical director) for "The Hunting of the Snark" - a family musical which started life at Edinburgh Fringe and has since graduated to the West End and a world tour (see snarkthemusical.com for more information)

    I was commissioned to co-adapt The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch, with Nicola Sangster, for Pied Piper Theatre, and performed in the subsequent tour. I also write music for young people's YouTube channels, including Thomas the Tank Engine & Little Baby Bum.

    I have a strong interest in anything with a geeky edge - Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Animation, Gaming etc and would love to work on an epic fantasy series!

    About me

    I've been an actor, writer, comedian and musician for 15 years, having graduated from Birmingham School of Acting in 2003 with a First-Class Degree in Acting. Since then I've performed in theatre, film, TV, radio, commercials, web-series, podcasts...

    I wrote and performed with award-winning, critically-acclaimed sketch comedy group, Delete the Banjax, and I now specialize in musical comedy, both as a solo artist and with Small Laces (a musical comedy band for kids). I'm an Edinburgh Fringe veteran, having written and performed in 9 shows over 7 Festivals.
